The headlines for Monday

Main Event down to 281
Nick Petrangelo wins High Roller
Lex Veldhuis sets his own Twitch record
Jens "Fresh_oO_D" Lakemeier wins second title of the Championship
Andrey "kroko-dill" Zaichenko defends FLO8 title

There were 13 winners since the last WCOOP updates making it a busy weekend. Among them were some stand out results worthy of note
Lex Veldhuis didn't win a title, but he did finish fourth in WCOOP-64, setting his own personal Twitch record along the way. He streamed the entire tournament on his way to fourth place and a $42,000 payout - his biggest while Twitching.

Nick Petrangelo won WCOOP-66, the high roller event. In keeping with events like this the final table was a tough one, featuring the likes of Bryn Kenney, Viktor Blom, Patrick Leonard and Charlie Carrol.

Title defences are rare in online poker, which makes Andrey "Kroko-dill" Zaichenko's result worthy of a hat tip. He successfully defended his FLO8 title, his fourth COOP and third career WCOOP.

There was also a second title for Jens "Fresh_oO_D" Lakemeier in WCOOP-67. He joins thehushpuppy as having won two WCOOPs in 2017. Thehushpuppy also reached a final table, finishing seventh in WCOOP-70.
